    which amp kit to use

    I want to install a kenwood 959 amp, it has 2 25amp fuses, that makes a 50 amp draw, so ive been looking for 8 awg amp kit and they use a 60 amp fuse, as far as I know, Im not an expert, bot I think that you cant use a fuse with a higher rating than the fuses in your amp, I mean the fuse you put near the battery can not have a higher rating than the ones in your amp, what should I do.
    The amp is 40x4 + 120 x1 4 ohm load 14.4 stereo
    I also wamnt to use a capacitor to power my amp, since I have high intensity bulb, and a pair of fog lights and hellas running, so I dont want them to dim.
    Would a 1 farad capacitor damage my amp, Or would the amp only use when its necessary, like when I need a heavier bass response

    you can use a bigger fuse the fuse under the bonnet is to protect the car mainly not the amps hooked to it but if you have a smaller fuse it will be continuousaly be blowing
